PBA president addresses the death in custody of a PCP user

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“The single act of using PCP places the user’s life in jeopardy. The drug puts the abuser in an extremely agitated state while boosting the person’s strength to abnormal levels.  Our members follow department protocols designed to best insure the safety of the drug abuser and of the police officers who are attempting to get the individual the necessary medical aid.  The responsibility for the outcome lies entirely with the drug abuser not the police officers attempting to remove him as a danger to the public and himself.”
